Scars

Scars remind me where the arrows went in

Piercing me deeply

Breaking open skin

Tearing and bleeding rivers of grief

That flow within

The scars still itch

From where the hurting lived

Reminding me of fires that burned

Awakening me to

Pain and light

Over long days

Through dreamless sleep

Buried beneath dark shadows of night

Scars bore testament to this

Initiation in service of the Self

Bidding me surrender to

The truth of love that burned to live

Most certainly birthed

Through fires of suffering
